picked this little gem up for 100$ :dancingbanana:   guy said drive belt broke and wouldnt move. shop said 1 1/2 job plus 30$ for the belt.    so he decided to sell said it was over his head to do!  well a trip to the local farm store and i had a new belt for 5$ 30 min job and was up and mowing! runs great(also went ahead and replaced deck belt) no rust deck is almost like new and the single 30" blade is sharp :dancingbanana:

got a new deere seat on order 62$ and the average full tune up stuff.   has a month old new battery starts right up with turn of the key.  with the new seat and belts tune up and all should be very nice little mower for less then 200$

 

thanks

Those are neat mowers, I like the RER's, but I have no need of a mower that size, might get one anyway and build mini hot rod.

thing is funny already put it in 5th gear put throttle on rabbit let out the clutch and it will pop a small wheelie :dancingbanana: i need it like a hole in the head but for the price couldnt pass it up..   when the new jd seat comes in with new pedal pads it will look almost new.  think i could get 400$ for it?  i will have right at 200$ in total. complete tune up,new belts,seat,pedal pads and cleaned up nice with a new battery starts right up and mows great.
